HBO has released the first official teaser for “The Gilded Age,” a new historical drama series created by award-winning creator / producer / screenwriter “Downton Abbey” Julian Fellowes.
The new series takes place in New York in 1882 during the “Gilded Age,” a period in which America’s rapid economic growth caused a large wealth gap between rich and poor, as well as a social divide between “old money” and “new money.”
The HBO series boasts a strong cast that includes Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon, Louisa Jacobson, Carrie Coon, Morgan Spector, Denee Benton, Audra McDonald, Taissa Farmiga and many others.
